The RCMP have released the identity of the man who died in a fire that gutted an Arrow Heights home Thursday morning. Michael John Ralph, 51, died after being unable to escape the blaze that consumed his Tillen Road home Thursday morning. The fire started at around 5 a.m. at a single-family home on Tillen Road. Ralph's 25-year-old daughter was able to escape through a window and she told RCMP that her father was still inside, the RCMP said Thursday morning. Ralph was considered missing until the afternoon, when investigators were finally able to enter the home and retrieve his body, said Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen of the Revelstoke RCMP. She said his daughter was receiving grief counseling and support from

Victim Social Services. Revelstoke Fire Chief Rob Girard said about 20 firefighters responded to the blaze. They launched an interior attack on the fire but the intensity of the flames was such that they had to pull out. "We declared it was an exterior attack only for the safety of our firefighters," said Girard. "The first floor was compromised. It was basically caving in, it was burnt out. It collapsed and the roof collapsed as well." By 10 a.m. the fire was extinguished and fire crews were wrapping up their attack. The exterior of the home still stood, but the inside appeared to be completely destroyed. A public works employee had to be called in to pump water out of the house before Ralph’s body could be removed. The RCMP and Office of the Fire Commissioner are investigating the fire.

A photo of the old collapsed box culvert that is creating the Cartier Bay wetland. BC Hydro

Times Review staff

BC Hydro will be providing information on three wildlife enhancement projects at an open house this Thursday, Jan. 24. The first is the Cartier Bay wetland protection and enhancement project. Cartier Bay is an important wetland in the Colum-

bia River flats south of Revelstoke that is home to a number of migratory birds, herons, western toads, and western painted turtles. The wetland is created by a collapsed box culvert in a gap in the abandoned railbed that runs nearby. The culvert holds back the water, preventing the bay from draining when water levels in the Arrow Lakes Reservoir are low.

However, BC Hydro says the railbed is eroding, and it fails to hold back the water, the wetland could be lost. As a solution, BC Hydro plans on replacing the culvert with an engineered dyke to fill in the railbed gap. The dyke will hold back more water and is expected to roughly double the size of the wetland to about 54 hectares. BC Hydro also plans to create a new eight hectare wetland adjacent to Cartier Bay by installing a second dyke to fill another gap in the railbed. The second project involved the protection of the Airport Slough outflow. According to BC Hydro, Columbia River flows, snowmelt and reservoir operations are enlarging a 115-metre long Y-shaped erosion channel that runs from the flats south of the Illecillewaet River to Machete Island north of the airport. BC Hydro is planning on placing rock rip-rap along one arm of the channel to see if it will prevent further erosion and protect the Airport Slough south of Nichol Road. Finally, BC Hydro will be installing 30 to 50 nest boxes along the Revelstoke Reach of the Upper Arrow Lake to provide additional nesting habitat for six species of waterfowl. BC Hydro is also planning to install an artificial nesting island to see whether the island can withstand reservoir operations and provide additional habitat for painted turtles and other wildlife species. To learn more about these projects, you can attend an open house at the community centre on Thursday, Jan. 24, from 4-7 p.m.


Local BC Liberal candidate attends Calgary fundraiser CAROLYN GRANT Black Press

Columbia River–Revelstoke candidate for the BC Liberals, Doug Clovechok, attended a fundraiser in Calgary last Thursday night with some big names from his party, including Deputy Premier Rich Coleman and Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Bill Bennett. The $125 a plate dinner was held at the Delta Bow Valley in Calgary. Invitation letters, signed by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies owner Murray Edwards were sent out to business people in both Alberta and B.C. Holding a political fundraiser out of province raised some eyebrows, and in fact Premier Christy Clark defended the fundraiser in the Globe and Mail last Wednesday. In an interview before the fundraiser, Clovechok defended it as well, though he said he was a bit surprised at a “little tiny fundraiser turning into a national event.” “This is not an unusual thing as other parties including our provincial NDP raise money in other provinces,” Clovechok said. Clovechok said that said he wasn’t aware if the NDP had ever held an actual fundraiser out of province, but that it wasn’t that unusual. “RCR owns two resorts in Columbia River–Revelstoke – Kicking Horse and Kimberley – and one in Bill’s riding (Fernie). I am grateful to Murray for doing this.” According to the Financial Post, the fundraiser was organized by Edwards, Rod Love, a former political strategist with the Alberta Conservative Party; and Morten Paulsen, a public relations consultant with Conservative Party ties.

"This is a unique opportunity for us to raise some funds, but also to promote our area to Albertans," said Clovechok. "We call Albertans our friends and neighbours. I am going to Alberta representing the people I hope to represent after the next election, the people of Columbia River–Revelstoke. We are Alberta friendly, we want Albertans to invest in this area and are open to Albertans doing business here. Columbia River–Revelstoke is Alberta friendly, but I will be representing British Columbians, not Albertans.” However, Clovechok said that as second homeowners at many resort communities in this riding, Albertans do pay taxes and contribute to the economy. “I get so many phone calls from Albertans who have bought in this riding who want to know where their tax dollars are going," he said. "They can’t vote, but my office will be open to them. Currently I’ve been told by countless Albertans that they have tried to write to Norm Macdonald (NDP MLA) with questions and have received little support.”

Macdonald categorically denied that he doesn’t respond to requests for assistance wherever they come from or that he fundraises out of province. “When?” he asked of the out of province fundraising. “I know where I raise my money. We raise money from the people in our area. We get it $100 to $200 at a time. Where our campaigns are successful is in volunteers. “The BC Liberal candidate will have all sorts of money but we will simply outwork him on the ground. We have won the last two elections spending less money than any other winning campaign. That speaks to a whole lot of people – from Kimberley to Revelstoke and across this riding – putting their time and effort into the political process and I am very proud of that. It roots you in doing what is best for all people as a whole rather than a vested interest.” Macdonald also said he does hear from Albertans. “What Mr. Clovechok is asserting is wrong," he said. "We do a good job responding to anything that comes to us. But I represent the people of Columbia River– Revelstoke. The idea of holding a fundraiser in another province brings up questions. Who are you beholden to? “We do hear from Albertans and they complain about gas prices which have increased dramatically because of BC Liberal policy. They complain about the HST, which was official BC Liberal policy. They complain about second homes purchases being impacted by the HST, which until recently were flatlined because of BC Liberal policy. These complaints go directly to very controversial BC Liberal policies.” With files from Alex Cooper/ Revelstoke Times Review

New safety rules set for sawmills TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. Safety Authority has made a series of recommendations aimed at preventing another mill dust explosion like the ones that killed four workers in two separate incidents last winter. The changes are intended to cover pellet plants and other wood processing facilities as well as sawmills. Researchers compared the explosion hazard of different kinds of dust, finding wood “flour” can be a more powerful explosive than coal dust when it is dry and exposed to an ignition source. Two workers died and 20 others were injured when an explosion and fire tore through the Babine Forest Products sawmill in Burns Lake on Jan. 20, 2012. On April 23, a similar explosion killed two workers and injured 22 more at Lakeland Mills in Prince George. Investigators ruled out natural gas, oil and other fuel sources, leaving fine, dry dust produced from milling wood. WorksafeBC concluded that the likely ignition source was hot electric motor and gear reducer equipment running wood waste conveyors in low, confined areas of the mills. Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad said the BCSA team has worked with the industry and employees to develop new rules, some of which

use techniques developed in underground coal mining. The recommendations call for changes to the layout of mills so hot equipment is easier to keep clean and is separated from sources of dust. “I think this will be very positive for the workers, who I know have been very worried about what happened, both at Babine and at Lakeland,” Rustad said. “The authority is looking to do a 60-day consultation period with industry to meet those standards, and then asking industry to bring forward an implementation plan for each of their facilities by mid-June.” Babine Forest Products issued a statement Tuesday, saying it supports the direction of the recommendations. “Consistent with the BCSA recommendations, the new Babine sawmill will contain state-of-the-art equipment and systems to collect wood dust at the machine source,” the statement said. “It will have equipment, building and floor plans designed to facilitate clean-up and reduce areas where wood dust can accumulate.” Company officials declined further comment, as Crown prosecutors continue their review to see if the incidents warrant charges against the companies or individuals under the Workers Compensation Act. Negligence and other criminal charges were ruled out after an earlier police investigation.

Canadian Red Cross is looking for volunteers The Canadian Red Cross is looking for six volunteers to start up and operate its Health Equipment Loan program in Revelstoke, BC. This new location will be in the former Farwell School. The following volunteers are needed: Customer Service (5): Responsibilities will include but not be limited to: working with health care professionals’ walk-in clients, responding to telephone inquires, loans and returns, receiving financial donations, calling overdue clients. Volunteers are asked to work at least once a week between 10a.m. – 2p.m., Mon, Wed, or Fri. No previous experience is needed and training will be provided.

The survey results for French immersion in Revelstoke are in, and while the numbers for 2013 are low, that isn’t discouraging some local parents to keep trying. “I think the bottom line is if there’s a willingness to offer the program, then there are various creative ways to make it work,” said Stephanie Melnyk following a meeting of the Revelstoke Board of Education on Wednesday. “But there has to be willingness, and I know it’s there from the parents’ side.” Melnyk and Vanessa Morrow are leading a drive to start a French immersion program in Revelstoke. They attended a school board meeting late Wednesday afternoon where district superintendent Mike Hooker presented the early results from the French immersion survey the district conducted in November.

REVELSTOKE GRIZZLIES PLAYER PROFILES

Team Leader (1): Responsibilities will include but not be limited to ensuring all aspects of the operation of the depot are performed and carried out as described in the customer service role, maintaining hours of operation, lending and receiving equipment, assisting in recruiting new volunteers, training and support, scheduling, administration, customer service, data entry. The Canadian Red Cross Health Equipment Loan program is a volunteerdriven, community-based program that provides essential medical equipment to individuals on a “by donation” basis. Making this medical equipment available to the public makes positive impacts in the community. People in the community can only access this service if there are volunteers to help them. Without these volunteers our Health Equipment Loan program cannot exist in Revelstoke. Application forms are available on the Red Cross website at www.redcross.ca. Please email your application form or resume to Marie McKiernan at marie.mckiernan@redcross.ca or fax to: 1-250-491-8126 or phone 1-800661-3308 ext. 201 by February 12, 2013. Candidates will be called before Feb 15 for interviews Feb. 19 & 20 in Revelstoke at the Best Western Hotel.

The survey asked parents with children entering kindergarten in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and grade one in 2013, about their interest in enrolling their child in a French immersion program. For 2014, up to 21 families out of 25 respondents expressed interest, depending on what school the program was held at. In 2015, only 14 parents out 22 said they were definitely interested. The other eight asked for more information and said they weren’t fully committed yet. However, for this coming fall, only 11 families with children entering kindergarten expressed definite interest; as well as 15 families with children entering grade one. “With 15 total respondents and a potential cohort of 11 students it does not seem feasible at this time to implement kindergarten French immersion this fall,” Hooker told the board. “But I would recommend maintaining

the database in order to assess future possibilities.” Trustees Jeff Nicholson and Mauro Morrone agreed with his findings. Nicholson said that French instruction was a weakness in Revelstoke, but he didn’t think early immersion was the answer. Instead, he suggested a program like intensive French, which is run in other districts. “I think this would be much more doable in a district like ours,” he said. Morrone said he agreed that French immersion was beneficial “but as a trustee we have to see if it’s feasible.” “Obviously for the 2013 year the feasibility is not there but keeping the database active, it doesn’t mean that we can’t revisit it in the future,” he said. “It’s a difficult decision but I think it’s the correct decision for this 2013 year and I think we should see what are options are going to be after that.” The trustees did not hold a vote. Instead, they will be holding a special board meeting, likely on Jan. 28, to give Melnyk and Morrow a chance to make their case. “It’s a delicate balance between having enough numbers to maintain a cohort going through high school, but not too many numbers that we disrupt the success of the current English program,” said Melnyk. “In our district it means one class, and the numbers support one class in each of those years. I think it’s the perfect number that we have, it’s just that there’s something missing from the 2013 cohort so we’ll have to look at that.” Morrow said the numbers could support one French immersion class going forward. “If you look at the survey results and the birth rates in the city, it’s steady and even increasing,” she said, noting the strong response for 2014. “You’re only going to get more of that in the years to come. It’s not going down.”

Babies of 2012

CALLING FOR ALL BABIES BORN IN 2012 Make sure your child or grandchild is included in our annual Babies of the Year Supplement. Greg Kenyon, the new principal of Revelstoke Secondary School, during his second week on the job. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

Meet Greg Kenyon, RSS’ new principal Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

For the new principal of Revelstoke Secondary School, coming to Revelstoke is like coming back home. “I worked for 20 years in Kelowna so B.C. is home,” Greg Kenyon told me during his second week at his new job. “My wife and I we really enjoy this area of the world. We’ve been to many places but this is home for us.” Kenyon comes to Revelstoke with a wealth of experience as a teacher in the Okanagan, a volleyball coach, and as a principal in Sweden and Saskatchewan. He showed up to Revelstoke on the Friday before school started up for 2013, had a weekend to get his household items organized, and started work on the Monday. He described his reception in town as “fantastic.” “Everyone has been incredibly friendly and gracious and patient and all those things,” he said. “It’s been a wonderful experience.” I met Kenyon at RSS last Tuesday morning; he had already switched offices in order to have a better view of students coming and leaving from the school’s main office. His desk was decorated with a photo of his family, and a drawing by one of his children. Kenyon, who grew up in Northern Saskatchewan, took the long road to arrive in Revelstoke. He started off by receiving a major in history and minors in English and geography at Okanagan University College (now UBC Okanagan). It was there that one of his teachers suggested he become a teacher, saying, ‘You teach the students my class.’ and noting many study sessions were held at Kenyon’s home. He had been accepted to a Masters program at Carlton University in Ottawa, but instead he enrolled in teacher’s college at UBC. “Once I started my practicum I do remember stopping in my first lesson and going ‘This is so fun,’ he said. “Round peg, round hole. I found something I really enjoy, and I like to think, something I’m really good at. “Of course, you’ll have to talk to my former students about that.”

Over the next 10 years, Kenyon taught a variety of subjects – social studies, history, English, math, and psychology – in the Okanagan, mostly at Kelowna Secondary School. He also coached volleyball, which brought him contact with some coaches in Revelstoke, including Terry Beitel and Kathy Hoshizaki, and he came up here several times to take part in the Last Spike tournament. One year a friend asked him to be his assistant volleyball coach for a professional team in Sweden. He jumped at the offer, but the pay wasn’t enough, so he also took a teaching job at the international school in Orebro. While there he met his wife Asa. After a year in Sweden he came back to Canada. That spring, he was asked if he wanted to become a principal at another international school. “It was home for my wife and a very intriguing opportunity to become a principal,” he said. Kenyon spent a year at a school in Gavle, before going back to Orebro. In Sweden, he had to deal with the challenges of working in a different educational system, particularly the way students were marked. “It’s all criteria based assessment and evaluation,” he said. “If you got 28 out of 30, that didn’t matter. What mattered was, did you demonstrate this objective and to what level did you demonstrate it.” As an example, he said that if in math, a student did really well with decimals but poorly with fractions, his grade would indicate that, rather than provide an overall number for the test. “I personally, having taught in this system and taught and administrated in that system, you start asking yourself the question, ‘What do parents and students want to know?’” he said. “I think it’s going to be the wave of education going forward, so already having experience it Sweden, I’m comfortable with that idea. “It’s an interesting pedagogic discussion. That was a very interesting shift in thinking I had to undertake when I was there.” After several years in Sweden, Kenyon and his family decided to

move back to Canada. With jobs in the B.C. Interior harder to come by, he took a position as principal of Kerrobert Composite School, a kindergarten to grade 12 school in a small town in Saskatchewan. He spent two years there before applying for the principalship of Revelstoke Secondary School. The position had been advertised several times, and he said he felt honoured to be offered the post. “I know that they didn’t want to settle, is what they kept saying to me,” he said. “They wanted to make sure they had the right person, that’s what they kept saying and for them to say that I’m that person, I was so honoured to be offered the position.” Since arriving in Revelstoke, Kenyon has spent his time getting to know the students and staff at his new school. He credited viceprincipal Andy Pfeiffer with helping get going, as well as the office staff. He said he wants to continue the good work that’s been at the school, but also hopes to provide a fresh set of eyes to see what can be done better. “It’s a good opportunity to examine what we do here and if we need to change anything,” he said. “I’ve asked all the staff to stop in and tell me what they like about the school and tell me if there’s anything they’ve identified that we can work.” He added that he will be reaching out to parents and students as well to see what they think can be improved. He said he doesn’t intend on imposing his own beliefs on the school, but that they might show themselves in the way he conducts strategic planning and in the day-to-day operations. “I do not believe in punishing students, I believe in teaching students,” he said. “I believe in helping students learn and to grow. If a student ends up in my office for a bad choice, there might be a consequence for that choice, but I don’t want to punish them for that choice, I want them to learn from that choice. It’s how you approach people and how you approach education.” And he also might do a little volleyball coaching.

CORY LEGEBOKOW RCRW PROJECT MANAGER Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild (RCRW) is a cross section of local stakeholders that are working together to help recover mountain caribou through a maternity penning project near Revelstoke. Maternity penning, also known as captive rearing, is a proven method to increase mountain caribou calf survival by keeping newborn calves and their moms in a safe environment during the first few weeks of the calves lives. The RCRW initiative is indicative of the Revelstoke way of doing things; ensuring that solutions are local in nature and represent the interests of the community as a whole. Mountain caribou are an ecotype of woodland caribou that are specialized to thrive in the snowy alpine mountains Revelstoke is famous for. They feed on tree lichens utilizing our deep winter snowpack for easy

access. Mountain caribou are globally unique, as they’re the world’s southernmost caribou population. Unfortunately they are in peril. Mountain caribou numbers in the Revelstoke area have decreased by almost 70 per cent since the mid-1990s and are listed as threatened by the federal government, and endangered by the provincial government. Even though mountain caribou pregnancy rates for the region are consistently high, the number of calves surviving to 10 months of age has declined due to predation. As such, calf numbers are too low to sustain the population. This is likely to cause the loss of these majestic animals if further action isn’t taken now. As a result, local representatives of federal and provincial levels of government, First Nations, industry, tourism/recreation users, environmental organizations, and academia are working together to facilitate maternity penning of local caribou to increase calf survival and boost caribou numbers. A site for the pen has been chosen and last spring local fire protection crews spent over 100 man days preparing the site. RCRW’s top three short term goals are to: -complete construction of the

maternity pen this summer, with all necessary surveillance and security requirements; -complete all protocols for critical issues (including predators near the pen, animal care, monitoring, reporting and communications) and have all logistical requirements met; -relocate 10 pregnant caribou females to the maternity pen in mid March 2014. It’s important to stress that the strictest animal care protocols will be followed. The caribou will be monitored 24/7 by First Nations shepherds, will be fed a healthy diet, and will receive only the best care from an expert provincial veterinarian. Subject to success in 2014, subsequent years will see expansion of the project to include up to 20 pregnant females each year for three to five years (possibly up to 10 years) such that calf survival rates can contribute to a self sustaining population. Other mountain caribou recovery options have already been implemented in the Revelstoke area including: -The permanent protection of over 140,000 hectares of mature and old growth forest from forest harvesting; -The closure of high value mountain caribou habitat to snowmobiling; -A moratorium on new com-

mercial backcountry recreation tenures such as heli-skiing; -The adoption of Best Management Practices by the heliski industry that are designed to avoid mountain caribou and minimize disturbance; -The indirect reduction of predators by reducing their primary prey (moose) through increased hunter quotas in specific areas critical to mountain caribou. The cost for such a project is very high. In the first year RCRW needs almost a half million dollars to get the project off the ground. Subsequent years are estimated to cost around $300,000 per year. RCRW currently has financial support from the provincial and federal governments in addition to the Columbia Basin Trust, but more is needed. We have funding applications submitted to many potential sources including the Columbia Basin Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program, the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund, and several others. Currently we’re competing for $100,000 through a social media contest sponsored by Shell Canada. Please visit www.fuellingchange.com for competition details and how you can help make a difference.

Ski Museum goes to Mont Tremblant, not Revelstoke Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum will be moving to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, following a lengthy search for a new home that included Revelstoke. “Tremblant’s bid reached the podium because of overwhelming

community support,” said Chris Edgell, the museum’s director. “There was also consensus that the St. Jovite Mont Tremblant Region represents one of Canada’s cradles of ski culture and racing folklore.” Revelstoke was one of five finalists for the museum’s location, along with North Vancouver, Rossland, B.C., Whistler, B.C., and

Mont Tremblant. “I think we gave it our best shot,” said Alan Mason, the City of Revelstoke’s director of economic development. “Good luck on Tremblant. I thought we sent them in a reasonable proposal. We had some concerns about how it would operate before we could consider it.” The museum was located in

Ottawa but started looking for a new location in 2011 due to the lack of space, considerable expenses and extensive competition for visitors in the nation’s capital. Revelstoke proposed to host the museum in the Century Vallen building on Fourth Street West and Connaught Avenue. “We sent them a pretty good

package but if they got a better package from Tremblant, that’s their decision to make,” said Mason. Mont Tremblant Ski Resort is one of the oldest and most popular ski hills in Canada, having opened in 1939. It is located in the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal.

Stoke Youth Network launches website Times Review staff

The Stoke Youth Network has launched its website, which they hope will become the portal where youth and young people can find out what’s going on in Revelstoke. The website includes links to

the community calendar, but youth specific opportunities and youth friendly community events will be highlighted. It also has a place where people can submit opportunities they would like to promote amongst the youth community. The website will also feature

the Youth Survival Guide, which was released in the fall. The guide was created as part of Revelstoke’s youth initiative, with information on everything from where to get your drivers license, to where to get help in a crisis situation, to what fun activities are going on in Revel-

stoke. The guide complements the Children’s Services Directory and Seniors’ Directory. “There is lots going on in our community, but youth do not always know what’s happening, who to contact or how to get involved,” said Megan Shandro, Revelstoke’s youth liaison. The creation of the website was recommended in the 2011 Youth Assess-

ment and Youth Action Plan. “It is great to see this and a number of other recommendations that were outlined in the Youth Action Plan come to fruition,” said Shandro. The website also includes a blog, links to community partners, and explains what the Stoke Youth Network and youth liaison are. You can visit the website at www.stokeyouthnetwork.ca.

OVER THE SPAN OF 13 DAYS IN 2003, TWO AVALANCHES NEAR REVELSTOKE KILLED SEVEN PEOPLE EACH. THE TIMES REVIEW LOOKS AT WHAT HAPPENED THOSE DAYS AND HOW THEY IMPACTED THE AVALANCHE AND GUIDING INDUSTRIES.

Out of the snow

ALEX COOPER

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

For Ken Wylie, the memories of January 20, 2003, are vivid. He remembers the thundering whumpf and the snow shifting beneath his feet. He remembers watching helplessly as the group he was guiding was swept up in an avalanche. He recalls the sensation of being buried in snow and drifting into unconsciouness. He remembers getting dug out of the snow 30 minutes later, mostly unharmed, only to find out that seven people he was ski touring with that day died after being caught by an avalanche in La Traviata couloir while skiing with Selkirk Mountain Experience. Eleven days later, Wylie was skiing in Rogers Pass when an avalanche struck a group of 14 high school students and their three teachers who were touring up through the Connaught Creek drainage. All of them were caught up in it, and seven died. Both avalanches emerged out of vastly different scenarios, but they both caused the public at large to ask questions about why so many people were dying in avalanches; and people on the inside to go looking for solutions. *** January 20, 2003 began like most other days at Selkirk Mountain Experience, with a morning guides’ meeting, breakfast and two groups of skiers heading out at 8 a.m. One group was under the guidance of Ruedi Beglinger, the legendary mountain guide, who’d built the Durrand Glacier Chalet in 1985 and established it as one of the world’s leading backcountry skiing lodges. “I always tell people I had 49 of the best days I’ve ever had in the mountains with him and I’ve had the worst day I’ve ever had with him,” John Seibert, a guest at SME that week, and several times prior, told me. The other group was with apprentice guide Ken Wylie. Normally they would both go to different location,

but on this day, they both found themselves heading towards La Traviata West Couloir. Beglinger’s group made its way up the steep couloir first and Wylie’s followed not too far behind. Beglinger and seven guests crested the top of the slope when they felt a large settlement. A series of three avalanches were triggered –  one class three avalanche to the southeast of the group, a second smaller one in between that slide and La Traviata, and, finally, the fatal slide that cascaded down the couloir. “It was unmistakable with the size of the whumpf, the whole world started shifting,” said Wylie. “It’s a very surreal experience to have the whole slope you’re on start to shift and become liquid underneath your feet.” 12 other people were caught in the avalanche, includig Seibert. Beglinger and his seven guests that were above the fracture line went into rescue mode – Beglinger directing the rescue on the site and calling for extra help. They were able to rescue six people.

Musician and artist to collaborate for charity Remember to use your Coupon! MELISSA JAMESON

Special to the Revelstoke Times Review

An amazing exchange of energies – artist, musician, and audience – is bound to unfold when impressionist landscape painter David Low joins musician John Jenkins on stage at the Big Eddy Pub this Thursday. The concept itself is incredible, with Low completing a painting by the time Jenkins musical performance has concluded. The idea to have both artist and musician on stage came about through conversations. “It’s something I’ve done before,” said David, who used to paint onstage with groups of musicians when he lived in Vancouver during the ‘60s. “When I moved up here (Golden) John and I got together. We’ve done quite a bit (of collaborating) together over the past few years.” The first collaboration between the two occurred during a CD release party for John Jenkins and Swerving Gently in 2008. Reflecting on that first performance, Jenkins recalled the evening was both fun and fantastic. “And the painting ... it’s a really special thing to take ... it’s a piece of the moment,” he said What makes the collaborative experience extraordinary for both Jenkins and Low are the exchanges Artist David Low paints while John Jenkins performs beside him.

Brayden Beckley scored the winning goal in the Revelstoke Grizzlies 5-3 win over the Kamloops Storm on Friday. Revelstoke followed that win with a second win on home ice on Saturday, 4-3 over the Summerland Storm. However, the Grizzlies couldn’t string together a perfect weekend, falling 5-3 to the Sicamous Eagles on Sunday. This weekend the Grizzlies head to the West Kootenays for games against the Grand Forks Border Bruins, Castlegar Rebels, and Nelson Leafs – the worst team and two best teams in the league, respectively.

Forty-eight competitors and six black belt coaches from across the Kootenay/Okanagan region came to Revelstoke for a randori – the Japanese word for practice fight in Judo. This was probably the most black belts and students hosted in the 20 year history of the Revelstoke Judo Club. For about half the competitors it was their first ever judo match, and they got to fight against many competitors from outside their own club. Most of the athletes had three matches each. Even some adults fought, including Revelstoke’s coach and sensei, Cornelius Suchy, who took on Trennin Lifely of Salmo and Jim Hamilton of Kelowna. Revelstoke was represented by 19 athletes, ranging in age from five to 14. Sensei Suchy was very pleased: “We saw some amazing fights today, from the teenagers, but also from the younger competitors,” he said. “Some of them are just five years old and they do stand their ground. We need more of these informal scrimmages. Each coach was thrilled with the opportunity to have so

many matches for their athletes. Because of this showing, we’ve been asked to host a larger and formal tournament on April 13 of this year.”

The Revelstoke Judo Club thanked the Revelstoke Legion and City of Revelstoke for helping to sponsor the event.

players. You can all be proud of yourselves as well. You guys and girls consistently show up and compete with an effort level and class that shows real character and makes you all winners. You have dedicated yourselves to a sport that will give you much more off the ice than it does on it. No matter what your dreams are the lessons that you learn from your coaches and the character that you build competing in practice and games will take you there. Aaron Vollpatti, Jeff Jones, Riley Hunt and many others have shown that being a player in Revelstoke can prepare you for NCAA scholarships and playing success, all the way to making it on to a NHL roster. Follow their leadership, always put forward your best effort and be of good character on the ice and in the classroom and you WILL be successful. Thank you to the volunteers, from the coaches, to the team

Reports on avalanches led to transformative recommendations from page 10 cona-Tweedsmuir School, a private school near Calgary, left to go ski touring through the Connaught Creek drainage towards Balu Pass. It was part of a weekend trip to Rogers Pass, the culmination of their outdoor education course. They were there to put all their avalanche education to use in the field. According to one consultant’s report, the students received the classroom education equivalent to a avalanche operations level one course. They had spent months preparing for this trip that hundreds of students from their school had done in the past. By all accounts, they were doing everything right while they toured up the drainage. They stayed spread out on the skin track, and were careful crossing the frequent avalanche paths that ran down from the mountains on the south side of the valley. Rich Marshall and Abby Watkins, two guides from Golden, were also in Connaught Creek that day. They were stopped for lunch when they saw an avalanche thunder down from Mount Cheops on the valley’s north side. They yelled a warning, but it was too late. All 17

members of the group were swept up in the huge avalanche that swept down the Cheops North 4 slide path. “When it released it brought down the entire winter’s snow pack,” said Dafoe, who was first able to see the magnitude of the avalanche when he was flown over the area not long after being called. Marshall and Watkins were the first on scene and they immediately launched a rescue operation. A steady stream of rescuers came from Glacier National Park, other national parks, neighbouring heli-skiing operations, and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Marshall and Watkins were credited with saving five lives. Seven students died: Ben Albert, Daniel Arato, Scott Broshko, Alex Patillo, Michawl Shaw, Jeff Trickett and Marissa Staddon. *** The two avalanches triggered an array of questions and responses. The La Traviata avalanche made people ask  how a trip with one of Canada’s most experienced and trusted guides could go so wrong. The Connaught Creek avalanche made people ask what a group of school children were doing in an area with such a high avalanche

danger. A series of reports were commissioned. The BC Coroners Service investigated both avalanches; Parks Canada analyzed the Connaught Creek accident, and an independent consultant did likewise for Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. The Province of British Columbia conducted a review of its public avalanche safety programs. Later, a lawyer was hired to give a second look at the La Traviata avalanche. The coroners report into the La Traviata avalanche, prepared by Chuck Purseand released in November 2003, pointed out that there was an instability deep in the snowpack and that a number of commercial operators had reported widespread avalanche activity between Jan. 2 and Jan. 19, 2003. These were reported on the InfoEx, an online service used by avalanche professionals to share information, that Selkirk Mountain Experience did not subscribe to at the time. The InfoEx reports also indicated that skier-triggered avalanches were occurring. Still, the report classified the deaths as accidental. The coroner’s report recommended all commercial backcountry skiing operations be required to subscribe to the InfoEx and that

John Seibert, a survivor of the La Traviata avalanche, addresses a press conference in Revelstoke the day after the tragic avalanche. Revelstoke Times Review file photo

commercial ski touring operations form an association for the purpose of sharing information and knowledge. It was the Connaught Creek avalanche that truly spurred drastic changes in public avalanche safety; investigations into it produced rec-

ommendations that led to the establishment of the Canadian Avalanche Centre and a series of initiatives that led to much of what the public experiences today when it comes to avalanche safety. To be continued next week...
